Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Set to Use Steamworks

by | @AttackFanboy | on August 18, 2011

Bethesda has announced that it will be featuring Steamworks in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  The company made the announcement via Twitter earlier, and it’s good news for most.  However, those of you that are still clinging on to Games for Windows Live with a deathgrip might be sad to hear that the game will not be requiring players to use GFWL.

The Collector’s Edition reveal which showed a Games for Windows Live logo on it got PC Skyrim fans worked up on the notion that the game would require the DRM system.  Pete Hines told PC Gamer that Skyrim “is being published under the Games for Windows label, but it won’t be using the Live part.”
